Cocada. Brazil

Cocada is the fisherman's friend of Brazil. Made from the two ingredients that exist in abundance on Brazil's hot and humid North Eastern Coast it is a high energy mix of sugarcane and coconut. A perfect companion for a week at sea or perhaps a long day on the bicycle. This healthy sweet is the original taste of paradise.

  • 1.5 kg grated coconut meat
  • 1.5 kg sugar
  • 1 liter of water
  • 1.5 tps greated ginger
  • 4 cloves
  • 2 sticks of cinnamon
  • Fresh fruit juice can also be added to give a new flavor. Passion fruit is perfect. Add one cup

1. Put the sugar and water in a large pan and heat stirring constantly.

2. Once you have a syrupy consistency add the coconut meat and other ingredients and continue to stir.

3. Stir well with a wooden spoon and once nice and sticky pour into shallow tray lined with baking paper.

4. Leave to cool and then and cut into squares.

Enjoy with a cup of strong coffee.
